First Communion

Preparation for First Communion, please contact the Parish Office at  515- 244-4709.

The Eucharist is at the heart of “Christian initiation”, together with Baptism and Confirmation, and it constitutes the source of the Church’s life itself. From this Sacrament of love, in fact, flows every authentic journey of faith, of communion and of witness.

Parents must be registered members of St Anthony Parish. Children must be registered for religious education classes for 2 consecutive years. Registrations open mid April. Baptism Certificate is needed upon registration. First Communion prep starts when children are in 1st Grade.
